    27     <description>The FOSDEM Opening Talk, including the infamous FOSDEM dance.</description>
     27    <description>FOSDEM was started under the name OSDEM (Open Source Developers of Europe Meeting) by Raphael Bauduin. Raphael says that, since he felt he lacked the brains to properly contribute to the open source community, he wanted to contribute by launching a European event in Brussels. It was an immediate success, with speakers coming from all over.
     29The FOSDEM conference is coming to its tenth birthday. We will quickly go over the history and present.</description>

    44     <abstract>Freedom, openness and participation have become a pervasive part of digital
    45 life. 250 million people use Firefox. Wikipedia reaches people in 260 languages.
    46 Whole countries have Linux in their schools. Flickr hosts millions of openly
    47 licenses photos. Apache underpins the Internet. We have moved mountains.</abstract>
    48     <description>At the same time, the terrain has shifted. Our digital world has moved into the
    49 cloud. And, our window into this world is just as often unhackable phones in our
    50 pocket as it is flexible computers on our desktop. Hundreds of millions of
    51 people take being digital for granted, and rarely stop to think what it means.
    52 The world where free and open source software were born is not the same as the
    53 world they have helped to build.
    55 It's time to ask: what do freedom, openness and participation look like 10 years
    56 from now? How do we promote these values into the future? Building the open web
    57 and hackability into the world of mobile is part of the answer. Promoting privacy,
    58 portability and user control in the cloud are also critical. But what else? Mark
    59 Surman will reflect on these questions and chat with the FOSDEM crowd.</description>

     100    <abstract>SystemTap an application that observes your system on multiple levels, from kernel, libraries, applications, java to database transactions. SystemTap is a new player in the monitoring world!:t</abstract>
     101    <description>Ever wondered what your system is really doing? Even if your whole system consists of Free Software you might still be scratching your head about what is really going on. Reading all the sources or staring at a core dump after the fact only gets you that far. You have to observe your system while it is running. Luckily the last few years there has been lots of improvements in GNU/Linux around how to monitor, trace, profile and debug your system. Kernel ftrace, pref, tracepoints, better debuginfo, application and library probe points, tapsets and compatibility with dtrace. Systemtap can take advantage of it all and provides a powerful way to get full system observability.
     103Want to dive deep into applications, java processes or the linux kernel without needing to stop or interrupt anything? SystemTap is the tool of choice for complex tasks that may require live analysis, programmable on-line response, and whole-system symbolic access. SystemTap can also handle simple tracing jobs. Learn how to setup SystemTap, what ready to run scripts there are, and how to tailor your probes to specific applications or kernel usage patterns.
     105SystemTap can observe on multiple levels, from kernel, libraries, applications, java to database transactions. To help users to get a better view what an application is doing you can add tapsets and static markers. And such markers can be made compatible with dtrace (to make your solaris hacker friends happy). There are already lots of packages that provide such high level observability, Postgresql, Java hotspot, Xorg, Python, Firefox, etc. Learn how to rapid prototype observability of your application through tapsets with function and statement probes (on any existing binary) and how to add high-level (zero-overhead) markers to your package sources that tell users about everything important, passes, transactions, service starting/stopping, etc.</description>

     124    <description>This talk will start off with a brief overview of the early beginnings of the project and how it has become the de facto standard for monitoring clusters and grids. The talk will then dive into the technical architecture of the system, discuss scalability issues, challenges ahead in adapting the software for cloud environments and other future developments. If you work with a lot of computers, then this talk is for you.
     126Ganglia is a scalable system performance monitoring software started by Matt Massie in 1999 while he was at the University of California, Berkeley working on the Millennium Project.  Since the inception of the project, it has seen 40+ releases and 299,208 total downloads recorded by Ganglia is simple to install and use and is available on most UNIX platforms. 30+ system metrics such as CPU load, memory usage, network traffic are collected by default and can be further extended via a command line metric reporting tool or pluggable modules written in C or Python. Ganglia is being used extensively all over the world by organizations large and small.</description>

     138    <title>Starting the sysadmin tools renaissance: Flapjack + cucumber-nagios</title>

     140    <track>Monitoring</track>
     141    <type>Podium</type>
     142    <language>English</language>
     143    <abstract>Monitoring software is ripe for a renaissance. Now is the time to for building new tools and rethinking our problems.
     144Leading the charge are two projects: cucumber-nagios, and Flapjack.</abstract>
     145    <description>A systems administrator's role in today's technology landscape has never been so important. It's our responsibility to manage provisioning and maintenance of massive infrastructures, to anticipate ahead of time when capacity must be grown or shrunk, and increasingly, to make sure our applications scale.
     147While developer tools have improved tremendously, we sysadmins are still living in the dark ages, other than a few shining beacons of hope such as Puppet. We're still trying to make Nagios scale. We're still writing the same old monitoring checks. Getting statistics out of our applications is tedious and difficult, but increasingly important to scaling.
     149cucumber-nagios lets you describe how a website should work in natural language, and outputs whether it does in the Nagios plugin format. It includes a standard library of website interactions, so you don't have to rewrite the same Nagios checks over and over.
     151cucumber-nagios can also be used to check SSH logins, filesystem interactions, mail delivery, and Asterisk dialplans. By lowering the barrier of entry to writing fully featured checks, there's no reason not to start testing all of your infrastructure. But as you start adding more checks to your monitoring system you're going to notice slowdowns and reliability problems - enter Flapjack
     153Flapjack is a scalable and distributed monitoring system. It natively talks the Nagios plugin format (so you can use all your existing Nagios checks), and can easily be scaled from 1 server to 1000.
     155Flapjack breaks the monitoring lifecycle into several distinct chunks: workers that execute checks, notifiers that notify when checks fail, and an admin interface to manage checks and events.
     157By breaking the monitoring lifecycle up, it becomes incredibly easy to scale your monitoring system with your infrastructure. Need to monitor more servers? Just add another server to the pool of workers. Need to take down your workers for maintenance? Just spin up another pool, and turn off the old one.</description>

     198    <abstract>The Nmap Scripting Engine extends the results of an Nmap port scan. It
     199combines the Lua programming language, a library of network functions,
     200and the results provided by other parts of Nmap to give more information
     201about network hosts and their open ports.</abstract>
     202    <description>There are standard scripts that grab SSH host keys or SSL certificates, discover the remote date
     203and time, check for weak passwords and unpatched vulnerabilites, and
     204much more.
     206The talk will explain how the scripting engine fits in with Nmap's other
     207functions, the structure of a script, and how to modify a script or
     208write your own. We'll see how the scripting engine can benefit casual
     209users, researchers, and security auditors. Finally there will be a brief
     210overview of what's new in Nmap and its associated tools for the benefit
     211of casual users.</description>

    212     <abstract>In this talk I'll describe the design principles of the Scala
    213 programming language, which has scalability as its primary design
    214 objective.</abstract>
    215     <description>Today's software landscape resembles increasingly a tower of Babel:
    216 Systems are built using many different languages, combining
    217 server-side and client-side languages, scripting and systems
    218 programming languages, general and domain specific languages, all
    219 glued together with a hefty amount of XML.  The advantage of this
    220 approach is that each individual language can be tailored to a
    221 specific application domain.  Its disadvantage is that the necessary
    222 amount of cross-language glue can make applications cumbersome to
    223 write, deploy, and maintain.
    225 An alternative is offered by scalable languages, which can be used for
    226 many different applications, ranging from small scripts to very large
    227 systems. An important aspect of a scalable language is that it itself
    228 is extensible and malleable. It should be possible to define very
    229 high-level libraries in it, which act in effect as specialized domain
    230 specific languages.  The advantages of this approach is that it leads
    231 to more regular system designs, gives better static checking, makes
    232 applications easier to deploy, and increases their reliability.
    234 In this talk I'll describe the design principles of the Scala
    235 programming language, which has scalability as its primary design
    236 objective.  Scala combines lightweight syntax with strong static
    237 checking on a Java-compatible platform. It encourages the embedding of
    238 domain-specific languages as high-level libraries. I discuss how Scala
    239 affects systems design and discuss its suitability for large scale
    240 industrial deployment.</description>

     231    <description>Log management, Intrusion detection/prevention and event correlation is a challenge we have been facing for decades.  Most of us have been able to ignore it but with developments in regulatory compliance (PCI-DSS, HIPAA, SOX, ISO27K, ...) companies are required to investigate solutions. 
     232In this talk we will firstly touch upon the
     233problems that will be faced during such a project and how log management will look in the future (new standards are on their way).   After this boring introduction to
     234the magical world that is log management and intrusion detection we will delve into the solution that is presented with OSSEC.  While labeled as a Host-based Intrusion
     235Detection System (HIDS), OSSEC provides you with a complete arsenal of functionalities that allow you to build a log management solution which will translate
     236the most cryptic log message into a clear and actionable alert.  Expect an overview of the basic architecture as well as practical examples of how to customize OSSEC to manage logging from your infrastructure and applications.</description>

    279     <abstract>Open Invention Network (OIN), a collaborative enterprise that enables open source innovation and an increasingly vibrant ecosystem around Linux, has unveiled the Linux Defenders program, which is designed to make prior art more readily accessible to patent and trademark office examiners, increase the quality of granted patents and reduce the number of poor quality patents. 
    283 Keith Bergelt will talk about how the open source community is leading the charge in market-based patent reform. Its Linux Defenders program offers the Linux and broader open source community a unique opportunity to harness its collaborative passion, intelligence, and ingenuity to ensure Linux’s natural migration to mobile devices and computing. He will also detail how this landmark program will benefit open source innovation by significantly reducing the number of poor quality patents that might otherwise be used by patent trolls or strategics whose behaviors and business models are antithetical to true innovation and are thus threatened by Linux.
    287 The Linux Defenders website is located at</abstract>
    288     <description>Co-sponsored by the Software Freedom Law Center and the Linux Foundation, Linux Defenders is a first-of-its-kind program which aims to reduce future intellectual property concerns about meritless patents for the Linux and open source community.  The program is designed to accomplish this by soliciting prior art to enable the rejection of poor quality patent applications; soliciting prior art to enable the invalidation of poor quality issued patents; and soliciting high quality inventions that can be prepared as patent applications or defensive publications.</description>

     255    <abstract>The main goal is to buffer the time between the opening of the room, and the first real lightning talk.
     257If time permits, there will be a lightning talk about the lightning talks: with statistics about the proposals and acceptances, and the story of how these lightning talks are organized. Extra time can be filled with questions related to the organisation of the FOSDEM conference at large.</abstract>
     258    <description>The FOSDEM Lightning Talks are organized by Mattias 'Tias' Guns since 2007. The lightning talks allow projects that do not fit in a developer room to present themselves to the large developer audience at FOSDEM.
     260Lightning Talks can be described as the 15 minutes of fame for all free or open source projects. During exactly 15 minutes, one person gets to present the project or any aspect of it. All the lightning talks happen in a large room that can host up to 300 people.</description>

    306     <abstract>When the European data retention directive becomes law in all member nations governments will store who's e-mailing whom and who's phoning whom. This is bad news for citizens and has a devastating effect journalists and bloggers who need to protect their sources, especially whistleblowers.
    308 The Small Sister Project created a tool, SmallMail. It adds anonimity to e-mail even when data retention is in effect. So SmallMail delivers e-mail privacy as it was meant to be: you decide what happens with your data.  When needed and allowed people can deliver a message totally anonymous.
    310 The talk highlights the tools and then deals with the technical details of getting from A to B. Privacy and anonymity are complicated, but the tool is not. We build on the strong foundation laid by the Tor Project. The SmallMail engine is technically interesting, but quite easy to understand. In 15 minutes you can learn how simplicity and free software solve the problems posed by complex systems.</abstract>
    311     <description>The Small Sister Project tries to create a digital environment for all users to have a privacy-friendly system where personal data is properly secured
    313 So we try to create:
    314     * A toolkit that is very simple to install and acts like a flushot for a computer to add privacy/security
    315     * Sufficient information for people to empower themselves to secure systems and are aware of privacy-issues
    316     * Software that is the missing glue for what already exists and helps us reach our goals</description>

It allows to handle newsletters, receive donations, manage the membership and help organising events, all sharing the same contact database, and offering a 360 view of their contacts.
     299But beside helping the NGOs to work better with an efficient software, there is also a common set of values about sharing, openness, transparency and freedom that are should be better promoted by FOSS promoters and better understood by NGOs.
     301I will present how CiviCRM can help the civil society, and how to highlight these shared values while introducing FOSS to the civil society.

It will highlight the benefits of using distributed version control over a centralized approach and what features make Bazaar a perfect match for this kind of collaboration.</abstract>
    354     <description>Bazaar is a distributed version control system that Just Works. While many similar systems require you to adapt to their model of working, Bazaar adapts to the workflows you want to use, and it takes only five minutes to try it out. People have used it to version pretty much anything: single-file projects, your /etc directory and even the thousands of files and revisions in the source code for Launchpad, MySQL and Mailman.</description>

    372     <abstract>The presentation will give an overview about building your own customized OpenSolaris distribution. The presentation will discuss the new distro constructor being released with OpenSolaris 11.2008 and demonstrate on how to use it.</abstract>
    373     <description>The Distribution Constructor project is building a set of GUI and command-line tools allowing users to build an install image from a package repository. The distribution constructor tools accept input from the user and process a set of repository packages into one or more media images which can be utilized to install an OpenSolaris distribution.
    375 The Distribution Constructor package is available in the repository as of build 99, its name is SUNWdistro-const. Some basic documentation is available. The OpenSolaris 2008.11 distribution is built using this tool beginning with the build 98 ISO images.
    377 A future phase of the project will add the ability to generate an installable distribution using an existing installed system as its input, rather than a set of packages in a repository. This would be either an enhancement to, or replacement for, the existing Flash Installation functionality.
    378 Key Requirements and Functionality (2008.11 Release)
    380     * A command-line interface to run the construction process
    381     * A manifest file format consumed by the constructor
    382     * Modifications to the Target Instantiation module built in Dwarf Caiman and Slim Install to create the file system structure needed for building thedistribution
    383     * Modifications to the Transfer module to support installing a set of IPS packages
    384     * A plug-in interface that the user or other projects can use to perform their image-specific customizations
    385     * Checkpointing interfaces which allow a build to be debugged, and restarted
    386     * A module for constructing a boot archive usable on installable media
    387     * Support for localization of the image produced
    388     * An installable package containing the distro constructor</description>

     388    <description>Qi Hardware is a project to build, use and recycle electronic devices around principles of self-organization, all documentation is under CCSA, including internal schematics , building processes, and of course software is GPL, but far beyond that we are trying to make all processes to use only FOSS tools, including design of hardware (kicad), production (testing software), management, marketing etc, etc
     389At the moment we are focusing on our first device, a mini computer called Ben NanoNote.</description>

    444     <abstract>Overview of Marionnet, advantages towards different solutions, how it proved to be a necessary tool, how teaching networking has become less painful.</abstract>
    445     <description>Marionnet is a virtual network laboratory: it allows users to define, configure and run complex computer networks without any need for physical setup. Only a single, possibly even non-networked GNU/Linux host machine is required to simulate a whole Ethernet network complete with computers, routers, hubs, switches, cables, and more.
    446 Support is also provided for integrating the virtual network with the physical host network.
    448 As Marionnet is meant to be used also by inexperienced people, it features a very intuitive graphical user interface. Marionnet is written in the mostly functional language OCaml and depends on User Mode Linux and VDE for the simulation part.</description>

     407    <abstract>Rather than configuring tunnels, a tinc VPN is more or less specified by its endpoints. The tinc daemons will automatically set up tunnels in order to create a full mesh network. The problem in today's Internet is that many users are trapped behind NAT, and ISPs are known to drop ICMP packets, IP fragments, and/or UDP packets, making reliable connections between peers difficult.  Another problem is how to manage authentication and authorization in a fully decentralized, but user-friendly way.  In this talk I will look at solutions already implemented in tinc and other VPN software, and I look at future work to solve the remaining problems.</abstract>
     408    <description>tinc is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) daemon that automatically tries to create a full mesh network between peers. It can route IPv4 and IPv6 packets, or switch any type of Ethernet packet to create a virtual LAN. It can tunnel over IPv4 and IPv6, and runs on Linux, *BSD, Solaris, MacOS/X and Windows.</description>

    474     <description>"Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment", is an extremely faster,
    475 performing and energy saving desktop environment started by Taiwanese
    476 hacker Hong Jen Yee aka PCMAN in 2005. Today it is maintained by an international
    477 community of developers. It comes with a beautiful interface,
    478 multi-language support, standard keyboard short cuts and additional
    479 features like tabbed file browsing. LXDE uses less CPU and less RAM.
    480 It is especially designed for computers with low hardware
    481 specifications like netbooks, mobile internet devices (MIDs) or older
    482 computers. LXDE can be installed with distributions like Ubuntu or
    483 Debian. Applications running on these systems will run with LXDE. The
    484 source code of LXDE is licensed partly under the terms of the General
    485 Public License and partly under the LGPL. LXDE has recently been
    486 included as a standard desktop in Fedora and Mandriva and will also be
    487 offered in the upcoming Debian release.</description>

     426    <abstract>We will very briefly introduce Beernet's architecture describing the peer-to-peer network topology, the distributed hash table, and the transactional layer for replicated storage (called Trappist). We will also describe Beernet's API to create peers, exchange information between them, and to store and retrieve data from them. We will finally describe some applications built on top of Beernet, such as a small wiki, a collaborative drawing tool, and a web-base recommendation system.</abstract>
     427    <description>Beernet is a library to build distributed systems as peer-to-peer networks. It provides replicated storage with distributed transactions, which are highly robust because they do not rely on a centralized point of control. Beernet can be used to develop synchronous and asynchronous collaborative applications. We have used it to build a decentralized wiki, a collaborative drawing application with gPhone clients, and a web-base recommendation system.
     429Beernet stands for pbeer-to-pbeer network, where words peer and beer are mixed to emphasise the fact that this is peer-to-peer built on top of a relaxed-ring topology (beers are a known mean to achieve relaxation). The relaxed-ring provides a distributed hash table (DHT) with no central point of control and without relying on transitive connectivity between peers.</description>

     447    <abstract>Most of us have probably seen at one point or another someone using Skype for a conference call. We all know how well it works and how good it looks. In the SIP Communicator project, we have recently implemented support for a similar feature. In addition to mixing audio streams from all participants and then sending it back to them, we also distribute member information and audio level analysis to all members. We even support distributed conferences where mixing resources are provided by several different clients, and yet, all members get to the same view of the call and who's in it.
     449We believe that the various difficulties that we've faced along the way would be interesting to people working in the field of real-time communication and would therefore love to present them. The talk would be technical but would not require substantial technical background. In other words, if you are interested in VoIP then chances are you would like to see it.</abstract>
     450    <description>SIP Communicator is an open source (LGPL) audio/video Internet phone and instant messenger. It includes support for advanced telephony features such as conference calls, call transfer, and video calls with SIP. Jabber calls with jingle are also on the way. IM wise the application supports some of the most popular protocols such as SIP, Jabber, AIM/ICQ, MSN, Yahoo! Messenger and others.</description>

    524     <abstract>There is still a void for open source developers having their own platform for mobile development. The current choice is between Google, Nokia and Intel. Hackable1 intends to close this gap and offers desktop developers a quick start in minutes. No longer "fighting" with scratchbox or Openembedded: mobile development like on your desktop and with similar speed. If you have been developing for the desktop you will feel at home in no time. Hackable1 is based on Debian thus brings the power of 1500 DDs with it. It implements the GNOME Mobile stack and comes with a basic suite of phone applications: a dialer, a SMS and contacts application.
    526 Mobile devices are becoming ubiquitous and hackable1 is intended to bridge from desktop development to embedded development. It is an area where Open Source has a chance to be from the start ahead of the closed source competitors. We just need to do it!</abstract>
    527     <description>hackable:1 is a Debian based community distribution for hackable devices implementing the GNOME Mobile stack. Currently it runs on the Neo Freerunner from Openmoko but other devices will be supported soon too.
    529 As I have been developing myself on and for mobile platforms for several years now the main goal was to bring mobile development to all open source developers in minutes: mobile devices are the next "revolution" in computing and we should not leave the field to Google and Co.
    531 Hackable:1 comes with the full development environment, can be installed in minutes and provides an environment like on your desktop and allows for similar speeds.
    533 Bearstech (the french distributor of the openmoko phones) supports the development but a key point is community involvement - no decisions behind closed doors, everything is done in public on IRC and mailing lists.</description>

    552     <description>BUG is an open source hardware and software gadget creation platform.  There are no proprietary or closed software components running on the BUG CPU.  New devices can be created by snapping a variety of hardware modules (camera, motion sensor, GPS, LCD Touchscreen, WiFi, 3g, etc.) onto a small Linux base computer to make things like GPS enabled motion detectors, alarms, crowdsourced input devices, and wireless weather stations.  The hardware schematics for the device are GPL and the computer runs Linux, FOSS Java, and OSGi to enable a dynamic service runtime. 
    553 An SDK is available that's based on Eclipse and we have a application collaboration website based on Ruby on Rails.</description>

     507    <description>csync is a lightweight utility to synchronize files between two directories on a system or between multiple systems.
     509It synchronizes bidirectionally and allows the user to keep two copies of files and directories in sync. csync uses widely adopted protocols, such as smb or sftp, so that there is no need for a server component. It is a user-level program which means you don't need to be a superuser or administrator.
     511Together with a Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM), the intent is to provide Roaming Home Directories for Linux.</description>

     551- what is the philosophy behind this project.
     552- what are you concretely able to do with the integrated tools.
     553- why is it better than other similar solution (backtrack)
     554- Final words : we need contributors to side projects in order to replace some non FOS software.
     556a Demo would also be performed : a vulnerabilities check on remote host ( implies 2 pc, provided by the speaker ) + exploit with specific payload.</abstract>
     557    <description>shadowcircle is a free GNU/Linux Live CD distribution which was specially crafted for penetration testers.
     559Forked from backtrack, this distribution aims to:
     561- Remove any peace of non free software that was initially the backtrack packages base, and replace them by FOS equivalents.
     562- Bring more documentation about the integrated tools.
     563- Integrate cutting-edge security tools that are not yet available in similar distributions.</description>

     581    <abstract>Data synchronization is still mostly a missing piece in the free desktop
     582puzzle: solutions that are reliable and ready for the mythical Average
     583User just aren't available. This talk presents the SyncML protocol,
     584introduces the Synthesis SyncML engine (developed since 2000, open sourced
     5852009) and outlines how SyncEvolution is used as the synchronization
     586solution in Moblin, GNOME and other Linux desktop systems - stay tuned for
     587more news about this.
     589SyncEvolution is meant to be a cross-platform solution, therefore this
     590talk would be suitable for the cross-desktop developer room.
     592Direct synchronization with other mobile devices is the main new feature
     593in the upcoming Moblin 1.0 release. It will be covered in this talk for
     594the first time.</abstract>
     595    <description>SyncEvolution is a tool that synchronizes personal information management (PIM) data like contacts, calenders, tasks, and memos using the SyncML information synchronization standard. SyncEvolution compiled for GNOME's Evolution supports all of these data items. Compiled for Nokia 770/800/810 Internet Tablets, Mac OS X and the iPhone (only 0.7), it supports synchronizing the system address book. The command-line tool 'syncevolution' (compiled separately for each of these platforms) executes the synchronization. In addition, there is the GTK "sync-UI". The external Genesis is a graphical frontend for SyncEvolution written in PyGTK. The GUIs make SyncEvolution accessible without having to use a command line and provides graphical feedback of transaction results.
     597SyncEvolution was written to have a small, reliable solution for Evolution PIM data synchronization without reinventing the wheel. SyncML is the established industry standard and Funambol has kindly provided their source code under the GPL, so there was already an existing code base for client and server development. During SyncEvolution's development special attention was paid to automated testing and coverage of corner cases of the SyncML, vCard and iCalendar standards to ensure that no data gets lost or mangled.
     599The focus right now is to deliver the best possible SyncML client for Moblin and Linux. With the switch to the Synthesis SyncML Engine it will be easier to also implement a server mode and direct device-to-device synchronization - this is already working in the 1.0 alpha release.</description>

     617    <abstract>Enna is GeeXboX's next generation Media Center interface, built upon Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL). It allows you to listen to your music files, watch your favorite movies, TV shows and photos across your network. It relies on libplayer multimedia A/V abstraction framework to control your preferred player and libvalhalla, a fast media scanner API that will grab metadata (covers, fan arts, song lyrics and so many more) from your multimedia contents.</abstract>
     618    <description>GeeXboX is a free embedded Linux distribution which aims at turning your computer into a so called HTPC (Home Theater PC) or Media Center. The GeeXboX project features both a LiveCD distribution and a standalone media center application (Enna); the project developed also several libraries (libplayer, libvalhalla) to enhance the multimedia experience under GNU/Linux.</description>

     637    <description>Uzbl is:
     638* uzbl-core: a small program providing a UI to interact with webpages, a means to report events and send commands
     639* uzbl-browser: a complete browser implementation based on uzbl-core and various scripts providing commonly used features.
     640* many more scripts providing tabs, download managers etc</description>

    632     <abstract>Pieter presents [[ Wt], an open source web toolkit that brings state-of-the-art cross-browser, AJAX-enabled web application development to C++ programmers who have little or no experience in web technologies.</abstract>
    633     <description>A web interface to an embedded system provides many benefits, such as remote control without software installation, and comfortable device operation and configuration without the constraints and the cost of an awkward user interface due to limited space on the device itself.
    636 At the same time, web interfaces are becoming the preferred choice for application development of various types, driven by rapid advances in web browser technology, (wireless) network availability, and low deployment costs.
    638 [ Wt] is an open source web toolkit that brings state-of-the-art cross-browser, AJAX-enabled web application development to C++ programmers who have little or no experience in web technologies. We present some of its features and show how it resembles typical desktop GUI toolkits from a programmer point of view. Because of its high performance, it is popular for large deployments on Internet and intranet servers down to small deployments on embedded systems. We discuss its suitability for embedded systems compared to alternative approaches, and demonstrate some capabilities using a 200MHz ARM device.</description>

    657     <description>The Linux kernel voltage and current regulator subsystem is designed to provide a standard kernel interface to device drivers and board level code in order to control system voltage and current regulators. The subsystem is designed to allow systems to dynamically control their regulator power output in order to save system power and prolong battery life.
    659 This talk will describe the regulator subsystem and discuss how the subsystem can be used to reduce dynamic and static system power consumption.</description>

    701     <description>Dealing with embedded systems is a complicated thing: you have to take care of toolchains, cross compiling and, in industrial projects, most of all: reproducability and testability.
    703 PTXdist is a "make your own distribution" build system, based on Bash, Kconfig and GNU Make. Making a root filesystem for a target box can be as easy as 'ptxdist go', but the focus is on "executable documentation", not distribution. We care about upstream of the managed softare, separate our patches and try to be part of the world domination project by finding bugs in other people's open source software.</description>

    930     <description>After I committed this work to the source tree back in August, I moved my interest to the syscons driver. I'm currently working on adding support for Unicode font rendering. I will discuss the design of the new TTY layer, but also the changes I am planning to make to syscons.</description>

     883    <abstract>This session is not a talk, but an interactive session. The goal of this session is to have the downstream and upstream people working on GNOME meet, joke, fight, laugh, cry and dance together. And after that, an open discussion will take place about all the topics that we feel we should discuss.</abstract>
     884    <description>Potential topics include:
     885* what GNOME is not doing right for downstream, and how we could change this
     886* what GNOME is doing right compared to other projects, so we know this should not be changed ;-)
     887* forwarding downstream patches and bugs
     888* forwarding feedback from distribution users
     889* communicating important bugfixes to downstream
     890* how GNOME 3 will affect packagers</description>

     949    <description>From individual contributors to special-interest-groups to the core projects that make up Fedora, this talk will explain not only how the Fedora Project is structured, but the underlying principles and goals of Fedora that have led it to have its current organizational structure.  The talk will also discuss some general ideas about governance and organization in volunteer-led communities -- both in Open Source, as well as other fields.</description>

     1083    <abstract>GNOME Color Manager: exploring the user experience and integration points for a 100% color managed desktop</abstract>
     1084    <description>GNOME Color Manager is a new project intending to make color management in the GNOME desktop "just work". In this presentation I will quickly introduce why color management is required, and also the problems introducing a color management workflow. We will compare and contrast the frameworks commonly used in OSX and Windows 7. By discussing the integration points, we will be talking to application developers and platform maintainers in order to shape the future development of GNOME Color Manager. We will also spend some time exploring the intricacies of a color management framework best suitable for GNOME, and how GNOME Color Manager can start to provide this functionality.
     1086There will be time left for questions and discussion. It is expected the audience will be moderately technically skilled, and possess a basic understanding of color management.</description>

    1286     <abstract>Graphics drivers under Linux have seen the most significant changes since X was first ported in the last year. The X server can now run as an unprivileged process; kernel panic messages can be displayed while graphics are active; graphics applications can use virtual memory to store GPU data.</abstract>
    1287     <description>In the kernel, these changes include the new Graphics Execution Manager (GEM) and kernel-based video mode setting (KMS). Beyond the kernel, the second version of the Direct Rendering Interface X extension (DRI2) unifies the X and OpenGL image storage space.
    1289 This talk will describe the kernel and user-space changes along with the other kernel changes necessary to support the new code. Finally, the audience will be encouraged to participate in a discussion about future plans in this area.</description>

     1177    <abstract>OCRFeeder is a document layout analysis and optical character recognition system that I wrote for my Master's Thesis project.</abstract>
     1178    <description>Like it says on its website, given the images it will automatically outline its contents, distinguish between what's graphics and text and perform OCR over the latter. It generates multiple formats being its main one ODT.
     1180I think this is currently the most complete and user friendly OCR application for GNU/Linux out there and, of course, I wrote it to be used mainly with GNOME, featuring a GUI written in PyGTK and respecting, as far as I could, the GNOME User Interface Guidelines.
     1182I would like to present how the application works on the inside, for example the page segmentation algorithm I created for it, etc. I think this would be interest for the GNOME community and general attendants of the GNOME Dev room at FOSDEM.</description>

    1437     <abstract>[ Augeas] is a configuration editing tool. It parses configuration files in their native formats and transforms them into a tree. Configuration changes are made by manipulating this tree and saving it back into native config files.</abstract>
    1438     <description>One of the many things that makes Linux configuration management the minefield we all love is the lack of a local configuration API. The main culprit for this situation, that configuration data is generally stored in text files in a wide variety of formats, is both an important part of the Linux culture and valuable when humans need to make configuration changes manually. AUGEAS provides a local configuration API that presents configuration data as a tree. The tree is backed directly by the various config files as they exist today; modifications to the tree correspond directly to changes in the      underlying files.
    1440 AUGEAS takes great care to preserve comments and other formatting details across editing operations. The transformation from files into the tree and back is controlled by a description of the file's format, consisting of regular expressions and instructions on how to map matches into the tree. AUGEAS currently can be used through a command line tool, the C API, and from Ruby, Python, and OCaml. It also comes with descriptions for a good number of common Linux config files that can be edited "out-of-the-box."</description>

    1478     <abstract>The [ openSUSE build service (obs)] offers everyone the opportunity to build packages for many Linux distributions with relatively little effort. Hence the amount of available versions and variants per package is comparatively high.</abstract>
    1479     <description>Therefore we need a powerful but also simple instrument to evaluate these packages, which are immediately available at the openSUSE software portal. A first approach will be an individual rating of developers working with obs.</description>

    1553     <abstract>The Cross Development in OBS feature is now integrated into normal OBS development. It allows you to build, test, run applications for other processor architectures using a combination of emulators and crossbuild.</abstract>
    1554     <description>Emulators are already a normal part of OBS. An analysis has been made of the different ways to implement Cross Build to result in better interoperability with existing linux distributions for other architectures. The goal was to implement Cross Development as an orthogonal feature, and to glueless implement openSUSE, Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu for embedded architektures like ARM, sh4, mips in the same way as is done already by OBS for x86 and powerpc architectures.</description>

    1605 bootable USB sticks and VMware. It's also possible to conveniently customize software selection, configuration and theming of the appliances. Third party software may be integrated through coupling with the openSUSE Build Service.</abstract>
    1606     <description>Studio's testdrive feature allows users to run the appliance via the web interface for testing and further configuration.

    1646     <description>Many application crashes remain unreported due to different reasons:
    1647 * the crash is silently ignored since no core file is produced
    1648 * existing crash handlers like bug-buddy or Dr. Konqi are desktop application specific
    1649 * the crash is not easy to reproduce
    1650 * the location to report the crash is unknown

    1732     <abstract>This presentation presents ScalableOGo, a standards compliant free software groupware server.</abstract>
    1733     <description>Scalable OGo (SOGo) is a free groupware server focused on scalability instead of depth in functionality. The web interface uses human readable URLs and can be accessed according to REST web service ideas.
    1735 The server stores data in the iCalendar/vCard formats and has broad support for theCalDAV/GroupDAV protocols.</description>

    1752     <abstract>This presentation explores the free tools that the GNUstep project provides for writing cross-platform Objective-C software.</abstract>
    1753     <description>Objective-C is most known for being the language of choice of Apple and being the "native" language for Apple Mac OS X and iPhone development.  Unfortunately, while Objective-C is a fantastic language, the development tools provided by Apple are designed to lock developers into a closed Apple-only environment.
    1755 GNUstep provides an alternative, free implementation of the OpenStep specification (the core Objective-C libraries), largely compatible with the Apple Mac OS X Cocoa implementation, and a number of tools that allow Objective-C software
    1756 to be developed and easily distributed across a number of platforms, including GNU/Linux, *BSD, Apple Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows.</description>

Extensions provide often the necessary connector from to other software systems and the better they are integrated the better is the overall user experience and the interoperability.</abstract>
     1394    <description> Extensions provide a very good mechanism to extend with new and often specialized new functions. The extension infra structure gets better and better and an extension developer should make use of all the available feature to integrate best in the office. The session will give an overview about the Extension infrastructure and will give tips and hints what's most important to integrate well in and to provide a more professional extension. Often extensions are the beginning of more advanced development tasks that will go deeper in the core code of whereas extensions use API's only. The advantage of extensions is that you can work on a standalone mini project that uses official API's only and that you can learn the basics and secrets of step by step. But extensions can not solve all problems and often additional changes in the core or even new API's are necessary to solve a specific task. But as mentioned before extensions provide a smooth way to get started and to dive deeper and deeper into the large project code base over time. is a very huge project and the start to develop with and for is not easy and the hype factor is also not the highest one. But it must be something behind this project that big companies hire special people to work on campaigns against and open source in general. Is it still David versus Goliath or has the situation changed a little bit? Who knows but you can be part of the huge and worldwide community and can start to develop with and for</description>

     1414    <abstract>The main goal of the framework project is to provide low-level functions (like loading/storing documents, generic UI, OLE, filter management) to the application modules. As the generic UI is mainly based on framework code many aspects of the Project Renaissance must be implement there. This presentation wants to provide an overview about our latest plans to provide new and powerful docking window functions.</abstract>
     1415    <description>The presentation is split up into four different parts:
     1416# The current state of docking window design
     1417# The new docking window design
     1418# How can extensions profit from the new design

     1459    <abstract> is too fat and too weird to let you simply apply your standard unit-testing-approach to writing correct code. Over the years, this has lead to the creation of a number of mechanisms within the OOo code base with which OOo developers can test the code they write and compile.</abstract>
     1460    <description>Some of the mechanisms are, erm, creative, some are trivial. But what all the mechanisms have in common is that they all are brittle and all start to fail, in one way or another, sooner or later. Time to clean up. This talk will discuss where we intend to go, and probably tell a couple of anecdotes about where we came from.</description>

     1532    <abstract>ODFDOM is the name of the free OpenDocument framework, which was recently published in version 0.75 to support ODF 1.2.</abstract>
     1533    <description>Its overall purpose is to provide the ODF developer community a lightweight programming API in order to easily access and manipulate ODF documents. With its version 0.75, ODFDOM supports all ODF 1.2 elements and attributes, generated from the OpenDocument RelaxNG schema directly into the Java source code. The upcoming presentation will give an overview over the architecture, design ideas and in addition deliver insights about the roadmap and upcoming features.</description>

     1643    <abstract>Magnus presents the new "Exclusion Constraints" feature that has been added in PostgreSQL 8.5</abstract>
     1644    <description>A core feature of a relational database is being able to define constraints on the data, and have the database enforce those constraints. Today, there exists only one kind of constraint that will look at a combination of more than one row in a table - the UNIQUE constraint, often used as a tables PRIMARY KEY. This constraint makes sure no two rows have the same combination of values in the specified columns. But many datamodels contain completely different constraints, such as requiring non-overlapping ranges. For example, the requirement that a resource such as a conference room is not double booked.
     1646PostgreSQL 8.5 introduces the feature Exclusion Constraints, and this talk will present this feature and how to use it to solve this type of problem with a declarative constraint - while maintaining performance and concurrency in the system.</description>

     1663    <abstract>Elephants and Other Wild Animals: PostgreSQL at the Heart of the Ticketing Point of Sale in the Basel Zoo</abstract>
     1664    <description>For 134 years the Basel Zoo, one of the most renowned and beautiful zoos in europe, has sold entrance ticket by hand. A simple roll of paper tickets and manual book keeping where all that was there. Being a legal incorporated, law forced them to introduce an electronic point of sale system. First of January 2009, the system went into production and, unlike in other Zoos, worked without any problems right from the start. It is now in production for a year and has proven extremly stable and efficient.
     1666The PostgreSQL database is at the heart of the point of sale application and in this presentation Marc Balmer will show how PostgreSQL helped to create an enterprise grade application database which is accessed by different client applications in a distributed network, including low-bandwidth network links. The overall application architecture will be discussed and how PL/PGSQL helped to keep the business logic in the database itself, leveraging client complexity. Details will be given about the Motif based POS application, written in pure C and extended in Lua, as well as the backoffice which is web based and implemented in C and Lua. The presentation is aimed at programmers that want to include PostgreSQL in their application portfolio as well as decision makers that have to decide upon a strategic database platform for their products.</description>

    2091     <abstract>Grid Computing with Debian, Globus and ARC - collaborations in high-performance computing beyond programming and packaging.</abstract>
    2092     <description>Debian is known for being developed from its userbase. The individuals mutually trust each other, implemented mechanisms for peer review and have the technical support for authorisation and authentication. This way, the workload to provide the software packages for the compute infrastructure is shouldered by many individuals. Grid computing takes this collaboration further. Here, research groups offer access to their local resources not only to other research groups, but they may even grant the right to admit users to virtual organisations - much like the Debian keyring.
    2094 The presentation presents an overview on current grid middleware and computational grids established. The Globus grid middleware and its Debian packaging are explained, together with the packages of the Advanced Resource Connector (ARC).
    2096 Today, the most usecases of the technology are the sharing of the computational resources like plain compute power or storage. With the advent of these packages in the Debian main distribution, the adoption of these packages is expected to become more of a commodity to exchange computational workflows, share the burden to maintain rapidly changing data, or control the limited access to special hardware.
    2098 The speakers are researchers at the Universities of Copenhagen, Lübeck and Uppsala. With funds from several national and international projects in high-energy physics or grid computing, the three are contributing to the development of the ARC grid middleware - and for the provisioning of its Debian packages.</description>

     1722    <abstract>A modern PC is quite different from the 1980s original, and while the BIOS still lingers after 30 years it must now solve many tricky problems.</abstract>
     1723    <description>When the original PC with it's pre-ISA expansion bus was powered on, it was almost immediately ready to run an application. Today's PC can have several multicore CPUs interconnected by HyperTransport, Front Side Bus or QuickPath, DDR3 RAM on each CPU, and a large number of buses and peripherals. Many components require increasingly complex initialization to be implemented in software. This talk describes the technical challenges encountered by coreboot developers and their solutions.</description>

    2212     <description>The Debian Project is an association of individuals who have made common cause to create a free operating system. The development processes are open to the public and anyone can contribute. The strict Debian Free Software Guidelines are the basis of the Open Source Definition. The resulting operating system consists of tens of thousands of Free Software packages and is renowned for its reliability, thanks to Debian's extensive quality assurance policy.
    2214 Debian GNU/Linux supports 12 hardware architectures and 4 more are in various stages of development. Debian GNU/Hurd, Debian GNU/NetBSD and Debian GNU/kFreeBSD are works in progress. Several other distributions use Debian as their foundation.</description>

    2231     <abstract>The [ Distributed Systems Annex] is an optional part of the Ada language that allows writing programs that are distributed across several computers.</abstract>
    2232     <description>Each "partition" of the program, running on one machine, communicates with the others by means of remote procedure calls and shared data structures.  Ada provides facilities to make this communication completely transparent to the programmer. Thanks to it, writing a distributed program is no more complex than writing a monolithic one. Indeed, it is possible to recompile a distributed program to make it either distributed or monolithic with no changes to the program source. There are two Free Software implementations of Annex E for GNAT, the GNU Ada compiler: GLADE and its successor [ PolyORB], both licensed under terms of the GPL.</description>

    2249     <abstract>NARVAL stands for "Nouvelle Acquisition temps Reel Version 1.6 Avec Linux". It is a distributed data acquisition software system that collects and processes data from nuclear and particles physics detectors.</abstract>
    2250     <description>NARVAL replaces an older system based on C, Fortran and proprietary technologies with Ada and Debian GNU/Linux and is itself Free Software.  In order to ensure maximum data safety most of the program is written in Ada with heavy use of Annex E, the Distributed Systems Annex.  Software engineers and physicists from several countries use this system for fundamental research. The talk will present the NARVAL architecture in detail with some focus on the multi-tasking dataflow core and the configuration done through Annex E.</description>

     1820    <abstract>The purpose of this talk is to introduce Groovy using a practical approach by showing the differences and the improvements that Groovy bring, compared with an older programming language class.
     1822Since groovy is based on the JVM, it is natural to compare it with Java language.</abstract>
     1823    <description>We will start from a couple of java classes and we will rewrite it using Groovy and we will see how Groovy removes the ceremony and give a shorter and more understandable code.
     1825During the talk will be also explained theory concepts around groovy implementations time to time will be faced.
     1826Despite the topic, this talk is open to java and non-java developers.</description>

    2364     <abstract>This talk is about the IcedTea Java Web Browser Plugin.</abstract>
    2365     <description>It will be mostly technical -- starting off with the need for the plugin and it's history.  It will then delve into the elements of plugin design, and implementation details affecting speed, security and reliability.
    2367 Finally, it will also cover known limitations, and future plans to fix those limitations.</description>

     1844    <description>I will introduce a proposed syntax that is slighly different from the one proposed by Mark Reinhold, and explain how the syntax can be translated to a bytecode understandable by a JDK7 VM. Then I will discuss the possible reification of function types. I will finish by demoing a prototype of java compiler patched with lambdas implemented using method handles.</description>

     1864    <description>The wizard4j project defines a flowchart xml language to describe flowcharts in a formal way (so this logic is no longer burried in the rest of the code). Next it provides an engine written in java to 'run' these flowcharts. The target audience for this project are java software developers. Any java application that has some 'flowchart logic' inside (configuration wizards, helpdesk guidelines, surveys, template preprocessing, ...) can benefit from wizard4j, especially when this logic is complex or requires frequent updates.</description>

     1882    <abstract>Java web development is often based on a growing stack of software layers. This increasing complexity is impacting productivity and causing frustration of developers in each step of development, maintenance and deployment. The Play framework aims to bring back the fun with a simpler and cleaner stack, introducing conventions over configuration and encouraging RESTful architectures.</abstract>
     1883    <description>Version 1.0 have been released in October 2009 under the Apache 2 Licence. We will present the framework, explain and demonstrate how it is used to develop web applications, and introduce the vision and roadmap for the next versions.</description>

    2547     <abstract>The workshop focused on the creation of an extension in Java with the API plugin for NetBeans. The attendees can choose if they want to create a smart tag, or an options page demo or if they want to create a weather forecast demo.</abstract>
    2548     <description>Two of the demos make use of external functionality and show how easy it can be to  make use of web services or external libraries. The attendees will by guided through a detailed tutorial and will create their extension of choice step by step.
    2549 Ideally the attendees should bring their own laptop into the workshop. And they should have installed NetBeans 6.5, Java 1.6, and the SDK. A CD with installation programs for the common platforms and the whole workshop material will be available in the workshop room as well.
    2551 If you have no laptop, no problem watch your neighbour over the shoulder and work together. Or simply listen and watch what the speaker is doing ;-)</description>

    2652     <description>Cobbler is an installation server, written in Python, which allows for rapid
    2653 deployment (and re-deployment) of large amounts of physical and virtual
    2654 machines by defining distributions, repositories, profiles and systems as
    2655 objects. It's easy to get started with Cobbler, but we ship a lot of
    2656 advanced features to make it as versatile as possible, so you won't get
    2657 bored with it.</description>

    2698     <description>Linux has always traditionally lacked good service management
    2699  facilities, so much so that the typical daemon doesn't use what ones we
    2700  have and instead relies on hokey shell scripts.
    2702  Upstart is being developed to not only solve this problem but also how
    2703  it, through integration with D-Bus, DeviceKit and similar frameworks,
    2704  allows service lifecycles to be tied to hardware and system state.</description>

     1988    <description>MINIX started in 1987 and led to several offshoots, the best known being Linux. MINIX 3 is the third major version of MINIX and is now focused on very high-reliability and security. When you buy a TV set, you just plug it in and it works perfectly for the next 10 year. We are trying to make operating systems as good as that. The current version of MINIX 3 can detect device driver crashes and some server crashes and automatically replace the failed component without user intervention and without affecting running processes. The talk will discuss these aspects as well as new work.</description>

    2728 the intent to better support the then-ubiquitous install boot
    2729 floppies, Syslinux has evolved over the years into a widely used boot
    2730 loader suite with an advanced modular interface, with emphasis on ease
    2731 of use and reliability. It is now the most commonly used x86
    2732 bootloader for removable media, and is increasingly used for
    2733 conventional hard disk booting as well.</description>

     2005    <abstract>The goal of Apache Hadoop is to make large scale data analysis easy. Hadoop implements a distributed filesystem based on the dieas behind GFS, the Google File System. With Map/Reduce it provides an easy way to implement parallel algorithms.</abstract>
     2006    <description>Storage has become ever cheaper in recent years. Currently one terabyte of harddisk space costs less than 100 Euros. As a result a growing number of businesses have started collecting and digitizing data: Custumer transaction logs, news articles published over decades, crawls of parts o f the world wide web are only few use cases that produce large amounts of data. But with petabytes of data at your fingertips the question of how to make ad-hoc as well as continuous processing efficient arises.
     2008The goal of Apache Hadoop is to make large scale data analysis easy. Hadoop implements a distributed filesystem based on the dieas behind GFS, the Google File System. With Map/Reduce it provides an easy way to implement parallel algorithms.
     2010After motivating the neeed for a distributed library the talk gives an introduction to Hadoop detailing its strengths and weaknesses. It gives an introduction on how to quickly get your own Map/Reduce jobs up and running. The talk closes with an overview of the Hadoop ecosystem.</description>

     2027    <abstract>This talk will give you a better idea of what it takes to scale Facebook.</abstract>
     2028    <description>From the day that Mark Zuckerberg started building Facebook in his Harvard dorm room in 2004 to today, the site has been built on common open source software such as Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP.  Today Facebook reaches over 350 million people per month, is the largest PHP site in the World, and has released major pieces of our infrastructure as open source.
     2030It's not possible to scale a site like Facebook simply by sharding your databases, rather we've developed and contributed to a series of open source infrastructure technologies.  Some of these projects include Cassandra, Hive, Haystack, memcached, and Scribe, where each focuses on solving a specific problem with Thrift allowing them to communicate across languages.  This talk will give you a better idea of what it takes to scale Facebook, a look into the infrastructure we use to do so, and dive into performance work we're focused on in order to scale PHP to over 350 billion page views per month.</description>

    2914     <abstract>I'll be going over some of the particular UI and workflow issues in
    2915 editing, media uploading, and other areas that we intend to tackle,
    2916 summarize some of the existing work toward those ends, and give a
    2917 preview our upcoming Wikipedia Usability Initiative.</abstract>
    2918     <description>MediaWiki was born in 2002, when Wikipedia's editing activity outgrew
    2919 the concurrency limits of its original wiki engine. The first 6 years of
    2920 this open-source wiki platform's development were largely devoted to
    2921 scaling and performance, ensuring that the world's most editable online
    2922 encyclopedia could keep up with the number of articles, visitors, and
    2923 changes that come with being an insanely popular user-written site. But
    2924 the user interface hasn't changed much since 2003; if anything, packing
    2925 in more features has made many aspects of the wiki harder to use over time.
    2927 In 2010, MediaWiki developers are turning their eye towards usability
    2928 and design issues. As with the scaling problems we've tackled before, we
    2929 have to be able to target anything from a tiny personal or intranet wiki
    2930 to the massive Wikipedia sites, making a range of different use cases
    2931 with different needs... It'll be fun!</description>

    3015 will be mentioned, as well as an overview of development plans.  One will learn
    3016 how to contribute to the project; an overview of the revision control system
    3017 used will be given.  Some remarks on the future of the patch will be made: will
    3018 it be shipped with Mailman itself?
    3020 If you have used Mailman, both as a subscriber and as a list admin, and if
    3021 you know what PGP and S/MIME are, you should definitely attend this talk.</abstract>
    3022     <description>he Secure List Server, mailman-pgp-smime, is an effort to add support for
    3023 encryption and authentication to Mailman, the GNU mailing list software.  This
    3024 enhancement enables groups of people to safely cooperate and communicate using
    3025 email.  The patch includes support for both RFC 2633 (S/MIME) and RFC 2440
    3026 (OpenPGP) email messages.
    3028 Development of the patch is made possible by the NLnet foundation.
    3030 A post to a secure list will be distributed only if the PGP (or S/MIME)
    3031 signature on the post is from one of the list members.  For sending encrypted
    3032 email, a list member encrypts to the public key of the list.  The post will be
    3033 decrypted and re-encrypted to the public keys of all list members.</description>

    3052     <description>The JTR Project is a Java distributed testing framework conceived to fill a gap existing today most notably in the open-source world that’s the lack of a single tool that could help in developing from simple to complex test suites in Java with particular emphasis on the stack of backend-technologies embraced by the JEE specification.
    3054 The JTR Framework is aimed at fastening the development of both functional and stress-test suites for verifying the requirements and robustness of both JSE and JEE projects. The JTR Framework supports you in writing components meant for testing:
    3055 •standard JSE components / applications
    3056 •EJBs conforming to both J2EE 2.x and JEE specifications
    3057 •MOM-based JSE and JEE systems (JMS)
    3058 •web-services (both document-based and rpc-like)</description>

     2241    <abstract>In this talk we will discuss the issue of server images, and how it affects inter-cloud portability. We will describe our vision for a universal format which can be shared and improved as easily as a Git repository, and how we're implementing it with cloudlets.</abstract>
     2242    <description>Cloudlets are universal server images for the cloud. They're lightweight, version-controlled, and you can export them to any bootable format known to man: Xen, KVM, Amazon EC2, or just a plain bootable CD. They can be shared and distributed with the semantics of tools such as Git and Mercurial.
     2244Our goal is to build the foundations for truly cloud-independent infrastructures. Our roadmap includes:
     2246  * Multi-image stacks
     2247  * Auto-scaling
     2248  * Automated integration tests
     2249  * In-place image editing

    3077 (1) it has been designed to manage one stack per protocol family
    3078 (2) there is not a protocol family supporting (fast) multicast for Inter Process Communication (among processes running on the same computer).
    3079 The virtualsquare team proposes solutions for both problems:

    3081 (2) the IPN (inter process networking) protocol family.

     2268    <abstract>The talk introduces Wt::Dbo. It will be compared to existing ORM and database solutions for C++ and other programming languages. Based on simple examples, you will learn how you can use Wt::Dbo to manipulate objects that are stored in a database from within C++.</abstract>
     2269    <description>Wt::Dbo is a brand new C++ ORM layer. Similar to Hibernate for Java and ActiveRecords for Ruby, Wt::Dbo offers a convenient way to interact with objects which are serialized in a database.
     2271Although the lack of introspection in C++ seems to be problematic to write a decent ORM in C++, Wt::Dbo demonstrates that appropriate use of the C++ template system offers a perfect alternative.
     2273Currently, Wt:dbo contains the following functionality:
     2275&lt;li&gt;Automatic schema creation&lt;/li&gt;
     2276&lt;li&gt;Mapping of 1-N and M-N relations&lt;/li&gt;
     2277&lt;li&gt;Lazy loading of objects and collections&lt;/li&gt;
     2278&lt;li&gt;Uses prepared statements throughout&lt;/li&gt;
     2279&lt;li&gt;Basic query support&lt;/li&gt;
     2280&lt;li&gt;Automatic dirty checking and database synchronization&lt;/li&gt;
     2281&lt;li&gt;Built-in optimistic locking (using a version field)&lt;/li&gt;
     2282&lt;li&gt;Transactional integrity, even when a transaction fails: dirty objects remain dirty and may later be saved in a new transaction, or may be reverted to their persisted state (unlike Hibernate where you are forced to discard the whole session)&lt;/li&gt;
     2283&lt;li&gt;Transaction write-behind for changes, with support for manual flushing&lt;/li&gt;
     2284&lt;li&gt;Forces use of surrogate keys&lt;/li&gt;
     2285&lt;li&gt;Does not depend on Wt (can be used independently)&lt;/li&gt;
     2286&lt;li&gt;Simple backend system: at the moment only SQLite3. We are looking at how we can perhaps can leverage SOCI if it makes its way into Boost.&lt;/li&gt;

    3115     <description>ModularIT is a virtuliced and distributed modular services architecture based on free software. This project has been released for the spanish community at the beginning of 2008 and by January 2010 it will be translated to english. Right now it is downloadable and before the end of the year we will begin to develop the project through a public SVN.
    3117 ModularIT is the result of 10 years of hard working from Grupo CPD ( with free software systems and network services. we are a free software companies network from the Canary Islands, Spain. we are interested in presenting the project at FOSDEM.

    3141     <abstract>After explaining the basics of puppet and some background of the social network Hyves the speaker will discuss how puppet helped Hyves to automate a large set of daily sysadmin tasks. The speaker will also discuss how to automate common sysadmin problems / tasks with puppet and will show how to manage puppet masters and clients on large scale networks (+2000 servers)</abstract>
    3142     <description>Puppet is an open-source next-generation server automation tool. It is composed of a declarative language for expressing system configuration, a client and server for distributing it, and a library for realizing the configuration.
    3144 The primary design goal of Puppet is that it have an expressive enough language backed by a powerful enough library that you can write your own server automation applications in just a few lines of code. With Puppet, you can express the configuration of your entire network in one program capable of realizing the configuration. The fact that Puppet has open source combined with how easily it can be extended means that you can add whatever functionality you think is missing and then contribute it back to the main project if you desire.</description>

    3181     <abstract>The talk introduces the game FreedroidRPG, insisting on it being mature and fully playable.
    3182 We will see what features FreedroidRPG provides, present a few screenshots, explain our
    3183 interest in having an immersive ambience through dialogs, music and graphics, and mention the
    3184 unusual history of the game (it started off as a 2D arcade game before evolving into a full featured
    3185 RPG similar to Diablo). We will explain where we need help from the community. A demo will not be
    3186 possible in the timeframe of a lightning talk, but a little video may be played.</abstract>
    3187     <description>FreedroidRPG is a mature open source sci-fi isometric role playing game. It
    3188 strives at providing an immersive ambience backed by refined graphics and
    3189 music tracks. Besides the hack'n'slash action phases, dialogs with dozens of
    3190 NPCs take care of storytelling. The player can fight with melee or ranged
    3191 weapons, take control of his enemies by hacking, and remotely execute code on
    3192 enemy robots.</description>

     2367If you don't know them, they will hurt you. No matter how expert you are, there are holes in your knowledge, and when things go wrong you usually blame what you know the least. So the culprit could be that database, the regular expression engine, the XML parser, the thread engine. What if the problem is between the chair and the keyboard instead? This talk will give you some general insight on the art of software development, encouraging users to rant less and improve their own practice.</abstract>

    3210     <abstract>Too many game engines expect you to use their code exclusively. But no games company will replace their entire technology with an open source engine, just to utilise one component. Consequently, the only open source technology generally used in professional games are those that come as individual libraries - like Lua, or ODE.
    3212 In his talk, Steven covers the reason for why monolithic architectures are no good for games development, how to avoid them, and the alternatives - at both a technical and man management level.
    3214 He covers the principles behind creating interfaces and loosely-couple modules to ensure flexibility, and how to introduce new modules and platforms into the mix. Distinctions are also made between commonly-confused terms such as "engine", "drivers", "domains", "platforms" and "libraries."
    3216 Finally, an overview of the practical solutions are given, using the SGX Engine as a example covering audio, graphics, input, and scripting.</abstract>
    3217     <description>SGX is a 3D graphics engine, based around of series of null drivers and loosely-coupled modules to facilitate an infinitely upgradable engine. It is primarily suited to games and digital TV backdrops, and runs under Windows and Linux, using OpenGL. It is also one of the few Open Source engines to be used in commercial products.</description>

MuseScore is currently the leading free alternative to commercial score writing software like Sibelius and Finale. With over 50.000 downloads, it has quite some adoption already, but in order to convince music schools world wide, MuseScore's current development team should become a little stronger. FOSDEM 09 will be the first event world wide where MuseScore will be presented</abstract>
    3236     <description>MuseScore is a free and open source music scorewriter. MuseScore is a WYSIWYG editor, complete with support for score playback and import/export of MusicXML and standard MIDI files. Percussion notation is supported, as is direct printing from the program. The program has a clean user interface, with fast note editing input with mouse, keyboard or MIDI. MuseScore has binaries available for Linux, Windows and Mac, and is available in more than 10 languages.</description>

     2425    <abstract>CESLA has launched  "The wiki for open technologies " project. This project is addressed to the open source community and to the Internet world on the whole to allow collaboration between different groups and organizations.
     2427The talk will cover the following topics:
     2429* Thewiki4opentech policy and goals
     2430* What is different in the technological wiki?
     2431* How to contribute.
     2432* Benefits for contributors and for the open source community.</abstract>
     2433    <description>The Wiki for Open Technologies is an Internet site where you can find technical information and discuss about projects and ideas. Also you can edit almost all of the pages on this site and place new ones.
     2434This wiki is a project managed by CESLA, the Free Software &amp; Open Content Association of Aragon, Spain. With this project CESLA intends to create a technological content reference for everybody.
     2436Thewiki4opentech team is working to provide the open source community with a useful tool. This project is based on Mediawiki and implements some improvements to syndicate content with the same or compatible license. A vertical search engine, included in the wiki, allows searching in the most prestigious open source pages. Thewiki4opentech own content, the syndicated content from other wikis and the search engine  cover most of the open source technical information so the community will be able to find the most relevant  information and the main trends related to a topic
     2438Projects are saved as a whole and topics are sorted in tags and not just as an article, this wiki is a site where  projects are well documented and classified. All improvements around projects follow the objective of empowering open source initiatives and innovation in the open source community</description>

     2456    <abstract>The only talk that can use the phrase 'quantum mechanics' and not sound pretentious! It covers the principles of programming with variables that can hold multiple values at the same time - i.e. quantum superpositions, and how (and why) it's impossible to know which of those values will be returned if you query the variable. It also details the library itself, and how to use it. (uses the C++ Qubit library, based on Damien Conway's Perl module)</abstract>
     2457    <description>QuBit is a library to support Quantum Superpositions in C++. This allows each CQuBit variable to hold a number of different values at the same time. Normal mathematical operations can be performed on a QuBit, but they affect every value in the QuBit, at the same time. Binary Operations on two QuBits cause a result based on every possible outcome.</description>

    3278     <abstract>After a brief overview of the main features and benefits of Apache Solr (an open source embeddable search server), the architecture of eZ Find (the search plugin for eZ Publish, a PHP CMS), will be presented. The main lessons learned around dealing with a mix of structured and non-structured content, multilingual aspects, tuning and the various state-of-the-art features of Solr will be shared with the audience.</abstract>
    3279     <description>eZ Find is the enterprise grade search engine used for eZ Publish (a CMS written in PHP, with flexible content modeling). The back-end engine used is Apache Solr. The document/field model of Solr together with its powerful features around faceting, filtering, automatic related content and language features are a 1-to-1 match with the CMS used.

     2475    <abstract>When I started to build Padre, the Perl IDE in June 2008 almost everyone in the Perl community thought it is a waste of effort in a failed project to create something that no one wants.
     2479After 1.5 year, over 50 releases, more than 10,000 commits by many contributors we can say Padre is on its way to become the de facto editor for Perl 5 and Perl 6.
     2483It would have not been possible without the growing support from the Perl community and without the reuse of over 200 CPAN modules written by other people.
     2487In this talk I'll talk about Padre and how we managed to build the team. How we got included in all the major Linux distributions and what else have we done to build the product?</abstract>
     2488    <description>Padre is a Perl IDE written in Perl 5. It provides special features for editing both Perl 5 and Perl 6 files. It is available on Linux, FreeBSD, Windows, and Mac OSX.</description>

    3297     <abstract>The new wysiwyg editor developed by the XWiki team is a cross-browser, GWT-based, stand-alone editing tool that solves a number of known problems in other editors, and brings exciting new features such as concurrent realtime editing. Currently in a beta stage, it was bundled in XWiki Enterprise 1.7 and will become the default editor in the next XWiki release.</abstract>

     2506    <abstract>Bugs are pervasive in code. And when one finds one bug there are often
     2507others of the same type lurking in other parts of the code base. The
     2508difficulty then is how to find them efficiently within thousands or
     2509millions of lines of code.
     2511At the University of Copenhagen, in collaboration with researchers in Paris
     2512and Aalborg, we have been developing the Coccinelle program matching and
     2513transformation engine ( Coccinelle provides a
     2514language, SmPL (semantic patch language), for writing complex code patterns
     2515that may perform simple searching or that can be annotated with
     2516transformation information. A novelty of Coccinelle is that these patterns
     2517look very similar to ordinary source code. Nevertheless, SmPL patterns can
     2518be made generic using pattern variables, and are matched according to the
     2519semantics of the source code rather than the line-by-line syntax, and hence
     2520we have given them the name semantic patches.
     2522In this talk, we will introduce Coccinelle and the SmPL language, and then
     2523illustrate its use with examples based on bugs that we have found and fixed
     2524in Linux kernel code. In particular, we will focus on how the source-code
     2525like language makes it easy to customize the bug finding process to very
     2526specific problems and to fine-tune semantic patches to reduce the number of
     2527false positives, which plague automated bug finding tools.  To date, over
     2528400 patches derived from the use of Coccinelle have been accepted into the
     2529Linux kernel source tree.</abstract>

     2538In developing Coccinelle, we have particularly targeted Linux kernel code.
     2539Nevertheless, Coccinelle has been applied in the context of other open source
     2540software projects, such as OpenSSL and Wine.  To date, over 400 patches derived
     2541from the use of Coccinelle have been accepted into the Linux kernel source tree.</description>

    3316     <abstract>TikiWiki is a powerful, multilingual Wiki, Content Management System (CMS) and Groupware. Translated to 35 languages, and with an install base of tens of thousands, over 200 people have contributed to the source code and it provides hundreds of built-in features to create all sorts of web sites, intranets and extranets, including
    3318 The community eats its own DogFood and applies the "Wiki Way" to software development. Written in PHP, it is released as free software (LGPL). TikiWiki is at the crossroads between Wikis and CMS/Groupware. It is so much more than just a wiki.
    3320 Most wikis are pure wikis. However, is that sufficient? "He who is good with a hammer thinks the world is a nail". While a wiki is a great tool, it is not optimal in many situations. For some things, forums, issue trackers, blogs, etc. are better. That's why there are hundreds of Content Management Systems (CMS) out there. However, many CMS systems are focused on classic publishing, rather than community and collaboration.
    3322 In TikiWiki, the wiki way is found throughout the application. For example, the wiki syntax works in the forums, and in structured data trackers. Major features of TikiWiki include news articles, forums, newsletters, blogs, a file/image gallery, structured data trackers, translation, polls, calendar, Mobile Tiki (PDA and WAP access), RSS feeds, a category system, a theme control center, and more.
    3324 When would you need a wiki that is bundled with other features? Find out for yourself in this session what makes TikiWiki unique.</abstract>
    3325     <description>TikiWiki CMS/Groupware is a full-featured, tightly integrated, open source, multilingual, all-in-one Wiki-CMS-Groupware, written in PHP and actively developed by a very large international community. Major features include articles, forums, newsletters, blogs, a file/image gallery, a wiki, bug &amp; issue tracker (form generator), a calendar, RSS feeds, a category system, tags, a workflow engine, an advanced user, group and permission system and more.</description>

     2559    <abstract>This talk will introduce UmlCanvas in all its appearances: a Javascript library, a hosting service and soon a collaborative platform enabling "Social Modeling". We will illustrate what is possible with the current release and what we're up to in the near future. The talk will give the audience enough information for them to understand the UmlCanvas concepts, go to the UmlCanvas website and start creating online embeddable diagrams right away.</abstract>
     2560    <description>UmlCanvas is a Javascript library that turns an HTML5 Canvas element into a dynamic and interactive UML diagram editor and presentation tool ... on every HTML page, on and off the web.
     2561UmlCanvas also offers a hosting service that puts your diagrams online. Design your diagram once, include it in many HTML-based formats: your own pages, your blog, feed readers and even Google Wave.
     2562Integrating CASE tools and hosted UmlCanvas, creates a collaborative platform that enable modelers to step out of the closed environment of their desktops and extend their modeling into the social web.</description>

     2621    <abstract>Most people use open source software day by day. A fact that most of them do not know: Often, this free software is being developed, documented, marketed and improved by volunteers in their free time. Many open source projects work on fostering the idea of free software and open content, and a lot of users benefit from their efforts. Other than with proprietary software, users can get in direct touch with the communities via blogs, IRC channels, mailing lists or forums.</abstract>
     2622    <description>Despite the modern way of communicating, personal contact still is the best way to get to know each other. Meeting the people behind the names in reality is a great experience, and helps users of finding their way into open source communites to engage themselves. Therefore, Mozilla and jointly organize the so-called "Open-Source-Treffen" ("Open Source Meetings") to help open source projects in meeting their end-users and vice versa. Members of the community can get in touch with their users to gather valuable feedback, and open source adopters meet other supporters from their area.
     2623In the German city of Munich, the "Open-Source-Treffen" have been taking place regularly, and the idea is to spread the word for other areas, engaging community members to set up more meetings. Carsten Book of Mozilla and Florian Effenberger of, founders of the "Open-Source-Treffen", introduce their vision and tell about the previous experiences. Audience for this talk are open source communities wishing to set up their own meetings as well as interested users who love to learn more about the idea.</description>

    3364     <abstract>Solar hot water systems in particular, and home control in general, provide excellent opportunities for fun geeking. Conventional control is done with various boxes, each of which is very stupid. Everything is proprietary and mostly incompatible with other manufacturers.
    3366 Wookey decided that a better solution was one smart controller using open technologies, which could do cool stuff like on-line energy logging.</abstract>
    3367     <description>He will explain enough about plumbing that the rest of the talk makes sense, then cover the practicalities of the necessary mix of IO: (I2C, 1-wire, digital IO, switching, displays), Software (logging, control scripting, user feedback) and Hardware (Balloonboard+IO).
    3369 When he's finished you should have enough knowledge to go away and put together your own versatile controller (and solar system), and have an appreciation of the potential of this technology, as well as what work is still needded to make it accessible beyond the world of embedded Linux engineers.</description>
